the Mus. B. degree at Howard Uni- 
versity. He sang with the Howard

cludes appearances in Washington,

Mrs. Alethia Lightner Lewis, a native of Winnsboro, South Carolina, 
and a graduate of Shaw University in the class of 1912, has recently

manner the life of Dr. George Washington Carver. You will enjoy

Mrs. B. Helen Dobbins Dobbs of Cleveland, Ohio, and a Shaw 
University graduate of 1922, has won rewarding recognition as a 
writer of poetry. She credits all of her success and inspiration for 
the hundreds of poems to her participation in contests beginning 
when she won her first prize for a true story written while she was 
a student at Shaw University. Since that time she has seen her work 
in print 18 different times. Her most recent accomplishment has been 
the setting to music of two of her poems. Her poems appear in many 
anthologies, best known among them are the lyre ''Life" and "Some- 
thing Beautiful" which appear in American Voices of 1945, "Men In 
A Shell" and "Aviation" appear in the 1944 compilation of the same

angie brooks to be the only woman lawyer in africa 

Angie E. Brooks of Monrovia, Liberia, Africa, and a graduate of 
Shaw University in 1949 has recently received a law degree and also 
the M.A. degree in political science from the University of Wisconsin. 

Angie Brooks came to this country through the interest of Mr. and 
Mrs. J. B. Jordan of Ridgeway, North Carolina, who because of her 
splendid record in Liberia, offered her a college scholarship at Shaw 
University. This scholarship was supplemented by some work on the 
part of the student. She completed her college work in less than three 
years and left one of the best student records in recent years. 

She is now taking a post graduate course in London England, and 
when this is completed, she will take up her official duties as the only 
woman lawyer in Liberia. 

The Reverend W. A. Pittard, a native of Mecklinsburg County, 
Virginia, and a graduate of the 1896 class of Shaw University, has 
served as the State Statistician and Historian of the West Virginia 
Baptist State Convention for 28 years. 

Reverend Pittard began his teaching career in Wakefield, North 
Carolina where he became the founder of the school in that community. 
He was married there to Miss Aurelia Foster. He joined the A. F. 
and A. M. Masonic lodge, and is still an active member of that 

In 1907 he established his residence in West Virginia, and in 
addition to his teaching profession, he assumed the pastorate of two 
churches, connected himself with the Baptist Convention, and the 
Flat Top Association. Six churches have been founded and erected 
under his guidance. 

Shaw University Bulletin 7 

An unusual story of the accomplishments of an alumnus of Shaw 
University has just reached our attention. A recent issue of the Golds- 
boro News Argus tells about the Choir For Negro Mental Patients, 
which was organized by the Reverend J. S. Brown of Goldsboro, who 
is Chaplain at the State Hospital for the Colored Insane. The Reverend 
Mr. Brown is a graduate of Shaw University in the class of 1937. 

Realizing the importance of music in the llife of the Negro, he has 
used the choir and a glee club as a medium through which the patients 
may express themselves. This effort has proved most rewarding as 
eight of the choir members have gone home, and others are back on 
the road to recovery. This group of forty-two voices not only furnishes 
music for the regular services, but the members choose their own 
selections, serve as ushers, singers, and appear on programs to pray or 
speak. It is interesting to note that, in an audience of around 700 
patients, the service remains quiet and reverent. The pianist for the 
chorus is also a patient, who was an advanced music student prior 
to her commitment to the hospital. 

Shaw University is proud to bring to the attention of the alumni 
and friends, this worthy achievement of the Reverend Mr. Brown. 

Miss Annette F. Somerville, a 
staff member of the Norfolk Journ- 
al and Guide for fourteen and one 
half years, is a graduate of the 
normal department of Shaw Uni- 
versity in the class of 1922. Miss 
Somerville is at present conducting 
a weekly column in the paper, 
"Social Chat in Portsmouth", 
which has to do with the social 
activities in that city. She is choir 
directress at the St. John Baptist 
Church in Portsmouth where she 
has served three choirs a total of 
twentv six vears.

A more than capacity audience of Shaw University students and 
faculty were present at the formal opening exercises of the University's 
87th Academic session, which were held Wednesday morning, Septem- 
ber 24th at 11:00 o'clock in Greenleaf Auditorium. The principal 
address was delivered by Dr. Marguerite S. Frierson, professor of 
education, Fayetteville State Teachers College, Fayetteville, a former 
instructor at Shaw. A native of Augusta, Georgia, Dr. Frierson, 
received the A.B. degree from Shaw University; the B. Ed. degree 
at the University of Cincinnati; the Ed.M. at Boston University; and 
the Ph.D. at Ohio State University. She is also a member of the 
Pi Lamda Theta Honor Society- 

Dr. Frierson, speaking on the subject "Re-thinking Our Values", 
said that the American college student has come to be known as a 
light hearted individual, whose immaturity and adolescence continue 
throughout college. "The college has nutured and protected the student 
to the extent that it is the general opinion that we should protect 
the college student." She called attention to the lack of concern in 
students for serious world political problems, in contrast with the 
attitude of foreign students. "Values", she said that need consideration 
are: (1) Prize the right to engage in independent thinking. Be able 
to suspend judgment. (2) The right to make choices. Get a balance 
in what things are important things. (3) Get a sense of integrity, 
which will be shown in the attitudes that we take in our jobs and 
community problems. "Problems of 1952 place heavy demands on this 
generation of students to re-think their values." 

In conclusion, she pointed out that many Shaw men and women have 
distinguished themselves in life, and said, "We welcome you to join us 
in re-thinking values, and to come out with answers as to how you 
can best serve as men and women close to God to go out to make a 
better world." 

Members of the faculty and staff of the University were introduced 
to the students by President W. R. Strassner, who brought greetings 
prior to the address. The Rev. Moses N. DeLaney, assistant professor of 
Religion at Shaw, gave the invocation. Special platform guests were 
the Rev. G. A- Fisher of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church; the Rev. H. 
Cunningham of the Manley St. Congregational Church; Mrs. Ellen 
Alston, Executive Secretary, Woman's Baptist Home and Foreign 
Missionary Convention of North Carolina; and the Rev. G. E. Cheek, 
Executive Secretary of the Shaw University Alumni Association, all 
of whom brought messages of greetings to the student body. 

Music was furnished by Harry Gil-Smythe, director of Music. 

The orientation of new students was concluded Wednesday night with 
the University Reception held in the auditorium of the West Campus. 
The rceiving line which welcomed all new and returning students, 
was headed by President and Mrs. Strassner, and included all members 
of the University faculty and staff. 

A short program on this occasion included greetings from President
